No luck compiling ndiswrapper under coLinux for DSL, but booted an older Knoppix CD and found ndiswrapper already on it. The magic incantation, for a Dell Inspiron 600m with a Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (Broadcom chipset), seems to be:

# ndiswrapper -i /mnt/hda2/i386/oem1.inf 
# ndiswrapper -d 0002:0003 oem1
# ndiswrapper -m
# modprobe ndiswrapper
# ifconfig wlan0 up

I say "seems to be" because I don't have aircrack installed yet, so although the interface is showing, it doesn't necessarily do anything. I got the PCI bus information from Windows; clicking the wifi icon (looks like a single computer), I get a Wireless Network Connection window; at the bottom left click "Change advanced settings"; you get a warning if you're running as a limited user, which you can ignore; in "Connect using:" you should see Dell Wireless yadda yadda yadda, and a Configure button. Click that, and write down the info from all 3 tabs.
